My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

The success of Dunelm Mill shops can be traced back to 1979 when married couple Jean and Bill Adderley took over a stall in the Leicester covered outdoor market. Bill Adderley used his experience as a former manager in Woolworths to sell a wide range of products such as cushions and curtains. Their stock increased and soon they were selling a variety of household items and there was no longer any room at the market. The first Dunelm Mill Shop was opened in East Street at Leicester, England by Bill and Jean Adderley. Their aim was to have a home textiles business which offered a wide range of products at affordable prices. From this one shop they went onto open more small shops throughout the East Midlands and in time this grew to large retail units around England such as the superstore in Rotherham in December 1994. Other English branches include Birmingham, York, Coventry, Huntingdon, Nottingham, Derby, Reading, Sheffield, Preston, Swindon, Stevenage, Canterbury, Grantham, Stafford and Wellingborough. Irish branches include Belfast and Ballymena in Northern Ireland whilst Welsh branches include Cardiff.
Bill and Jean Adderley continued their philosophy of simply value for money
and this has seen the Dunelm Mill group succeed over the years.
As the interest in home furnishings spread through Britain so the Dunelm Mill stores adapted and this included offering a made to measure service for curtains and other soft furnishings.
In 1996 the family business of Dunelm Mill saw another Adderley join the company. This was their son Will Adderley who is now the Chief Executive of Dunelm Mill whilst his father, Bill, has a non executive role.
From 2002 to 2005 Dunelm Mill was seen as one of the UK’s fastest growing homewares retailers.
The first Dunelm Mill shop to open in Scotland was the Uddingston Dunelm Mill store in January 2004. They soon opened other Dunelm Mill branches in Scotland at Edinburgh, Perth, Kirkcaldy and Cyldebank.
In 2006 the Dunelm-Mill website was launched at dunelm-mill.com and this brought new customers from Europe as well as throughout the UK. In the same year Dunelm Mill floated on the London Stock Exchange.
By 2007 Dunelm Mill had a group profit of over £200 million and there are now over 84 Dunelm Mill stores throughout the UK with over 5000 members of staff. Dunelm Mill remains a family run business. They continue to open more UK branches. For example in August 2007 they opened another English branch at Shoreham, West Sussex as well as the Dunelm Mill shop in Aberdeen, Grampian.
The July 2007 rains and flood saw their Chesterfield branch suffer from flood damage.
The name Dunelm was taken from the name of the home that Bill and Jean Adderley lived in, though there is now a Dunelm Castle Homes company.
Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
